What a great read! This book really helps non-dyslexics start to understand the world of dyslexics. The practical advice and references to real-life case studies provide much-needed support for parents and educators of dyslexics. There is never any talk of dyslexia being easy to deal with, but there are generous examples to make you understand that the diagnosis dyslexia isn't the end of the world....
